How to turn off Adobe Photoshop CS6 Snap to Grid for Vector Tools

How To Turn Off Adobe Photoshop Cs6 Snap To Pixel Grid

Snap Vector Tools and Transforms to Pixel Grid

Adobe added a nice new feature to Photoshop CS6 and Photoshop CC which makes the vector tools snap to the pixel grid.

I had wished for this in the past but now I have it I’m finding it frustrating. Sometimes I want it but most of the time I don’t.

Adobe turned snap to pixel grid on by default but I don’t always want my vector tools to snap to the grid. It took me a long time find out how to turn it off so I’ve decided to make a post on it to hopefully save others from the frustration.

It can be turned off and on under Preference > General. The tick box is at the bottom of the Options just above History. This is on a Windows version. I don’t have an Apple version to confirm it is in the same place.

It would be great if it could be toggled on/off under the View > Snap to menu like all the other snap options.
